1) Description

Contra is a 'standalone' mod - it wont work in conjunction with any other mods
and AI patches you may have installed, so remove them before you install it.
This mod will work with all versions of Generals Zero Hour begining from 1.00

2) Installation

As a safety measure, you should make a backup of the 'Scripts' folder which can
be found in the "Generals Zero Hour\Data" directory. You should restore this
backup when you uninstall Contra. This isn't absolutely necessary but it will
help to prevent any errors when playing online after you remove the mod.

Unpack the archive.
Place Contra.big into "My Documents/Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data/".
Place into "Generals Zero Hour/Data/Scripts/".

Then edit Zero Hour shortcut by adding "-mod contra.big" to the end of link.
For example, I have this link for my computer:

"C:\Games\Generals Zero Hour\generals.exe" -mod contra.big

The mod is initially in Russian. If you need English version then place
generals.csf file into "Generals Zero Hour/Data/English/". If such folder
does not exist then you must create it.
